How Does Career Technical & Agricultural Education support workforce development?
Our career clusters, career pathways and student technical organizations are the core of CTAE. The classroom instruction and student-led chapters of national technical organizations help us leverage partnerships with local businesses, industries, and institutes of higher learning. This helps our youth explore options, learn new skills, and apply those skills in their careers.

Industry expert Kayleen McCabe and SHS students guided the elementary students through the process of build an actual toolbox that they can keep at the end of the lesson. The goal of the workshop is to educate students about career opportunities in the construction industry. Students are also able to apply math and science concepts by taking part in the workshop.
